No matter where we come from, we come with a worldview that affects the way we see, hear, interact and process. There is no right or wrong worldview but living in a different culture, I often bump up against my worldview and perception of what’s “right” and what is wrong.
I welcome food for thought that causes me to examine. Here’s an thought to chew on.
"An African who lives in Europe and a European who lives in Africa commit the same Act, in the sense that they leave their "home" and go to the others’ "home".
Now, the African living in Europe is called an "IMMIGRANT", a word that evokes the idea of one that came inside your house, the act itself invasive and annoying in the long run.
In contrast, the European living in Africa is called an "EXPATRIATE" or, more cutely, "EXPAT", words that evoke the idea of one who is simply out of his home, perhaps gone out to take a stroll, an entirely legitimate act and not at all annoying.
Discrimination begins with words."
